    Oops, just saw it at the ned of the post. So....

     

     

    995 gets me what more than MC users get for a fraction of that?

    I wish someone from Avid would comment on this. Avid are you listening? Would like to hear some justification on this. As a Symphony owner it's getting pretty old paying such a premium on each update for nothing more than MC features.

    A case where less is ostensibly more. No software-only modes (who needs it on a Symphony anyway), of course no IO Express (again, not needed), and no Euphonix Color box  -- the one that Symphony users might want most of all. Guess we're helping to pay for the MC improvements, though probably most Symphony owners also have a license or two of MC anyway.

    I cannot see the justification in the huge price differential, and v5 has been the most troublesome release of Symphony (for me) ever. Repeated attempts to reach resolve w/ Marianna M. were never followed through, though I don't have a support contract, so I've accepted being just SOL. Perhaps never say never, but I won't be purchasing this upgrade, at least until another umpteen patch releases of 5.0.x resolve some of the problems I've been having.

    Triple for me!!!!

    Upgrade not worth it, you may as well have 2 bootup disks, one Symph, the other MC and just upgrade the MC

    The colour correction tools are great but could be better, i.e close to a Resolve.

    I hope if/when Avid do update the CC tool they reward the loyalty of current Symph users with a very cheap upgrade (6.0).
